ABOUT THE FORUM

WHAT TO EXPECT

In 2009 we came together at Gaaysiigang to take on some of the pressing issues of the day – ocean acidification, dead zones, fisheries collapse, pollution, aquaculture. It was an important first step. Ten years later, it’s time to look at the actions we have taken, celebrate what we have achieved, and to write the next chapter.

 

 

 

OUR PURPOSE

1. Report on actions taken to implement the 2009 forum recommendations.

2. Produce a dialogue and methods around implementing Haida Gwaii marine and       integrated management plans.

3. Identify barriers, solutions, and next steps at the individual, community, and government levels to move forward with implementation.
